Death By Chocolate - Part 1




Now THIS is a homework project!

I admit that, when Jack came out of school last week asking for a chocolate bar so he could take the wrapper to school for a project, I didn't whole heartedly believe him. He got the chocolate though, and the wrapper was dutifully sent to school. He has now come home with the official Creative Homework sheet and sure enough it is entitled "Death By Chocolate"!

At last.... something I reeeeaaalllly want to know about!

Jack has plumbed for his usual crafting, research, and writing. He wants to design and make his own chocolate box (including making his own chocolates although that's not on the sheet and I might have to speak to his teacher about if he would be allowed to take them to class), and learn/write about where chocolate comes from and how it's made.

We've only chatted about it a bit this evening (it's Beavers night too) but he is very excited about making his chocolate box and wants an undead death by chocolate theme. He helped to design this header! And with Halloween being just after this project ends I couldn't think of a better theme! Ideas he's come up with so far include a graveyard box, zombie head box, brain shaped chocolates - we have the mould we used for the jelly last Halloween - and all manner of other gruesome ideas.

This is going to be fun!



Facebook has changed it’s policy for posts to Facebook pages like mine. They are only showing posts to a few likers unless I pay to boost the views. Since I don't earn money from my blog (or at least not much, not even enough to buy one posh a coffee a week) I wont be doing that. The best way to make sure you will see my blog posts is to subscribe by email up there on the right. I usually only email once a week and include an invitation to my blog hop so you can share your posts too.

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
